The WUSCT has strong evidence of reliability and validity as a measure of cognitive complexity in adolescents and adults (e.
Each of the 120 CCQ and WUSCT forms was scored independently by the first author and an additional trained rater.
The sample included a range of WUSCT scores as well: eight respondents at E4: Conformist; 26 respondents at E5: Self-Aware; 66 respondents at E6: Conscientious; 16 respondents at E7: Individualistic; and four respondents at E8: Autonomous.
Participants completed the short form of the WUSCT (Form 81-1), which includes 18 sentence stems, as compared with the WUSCT with 36-item steins.
